The outgoing Chief Commercial Officer of LIAT Lloyd Carswell says there is no bad blood between himself and the LIAT CEO Julie Reifer-Jones.

Antigua News Room broke the news of Carswell’s resignation this week, and in an email today he confirmed “yes, I resigned on the 22nd of May.”

But he denied reports that he’s at odds with the company’s CEO saying, “ It is not due to any wrangling or difference in opinion with the CEO.”

He admitted, “I am aware my timing is not great, but there is never a good time for an executive to leave a company.”

Carswell says he resigned because his family is being resettled in a new country ahead of the new school year.

The CCO said he is working during his period of notice and has extended it to help with the transition.  “I have additionally committed to working with the CEO and the interim CCO (to be appointed) once I have left Antigua.”

“So again, please be assured there is absolutely no animosity between the Company and myself.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in Antigua and whilst there have been a number of challenges in the role it’s been an incredible experience,” he said.
